2018 Riesling, Grand Cru Brand, Zind Humbrecht

This is the defining grand cru of the village of Turckheim. The wines from this site often have a ripe and approachable acidity, and 2018 is a perfect example. It should drink well from youth or keep for 20 years. The juicy, fleshy style of fruit is perfectly composed within the frame of the wine, built along detailed acidity. It showcases Brand’s typical power.

2018 Riesling, Grand Cru Brand, Zind Humbrecht
Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is respected not just for his winemaking but also his stature as France’s very first Master of Wine, as well as being a downright nice guy. With 40 hectares of vineyards farmed biodynamically, he is famous for very low yields, and for producing wine from all four noble grapes. Olivier has pioneered a grading system for his wines, labelling one (dry) to five to indicate their sweetness, amongst other efforts to put Alsace and indeed, Zind-Humbrecht, on the fine wine map.
